Translate a Business Idea in One Field to Another

“I am a huge believer in creative theft. When I work as a consultant with one kind of business, I identify some principle of success, some strategy that is working for them, then take it and apply it to a second client’s business in a different field, where the strategy is new. And while I’m doing that, I can find something that the second client’s industry is doing and “steal” it to apply in an entirely different industry. You can certainly do the same thing for yourself…you might do as I do–find an idea you can transplant from one type of business to another.” (p. 178-9)
